According to the FDA, maintaining physical distancing in the absence of effective hygiene practices may not prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Food facilities should be vigilant in their hygiene practices, including frequent and proper hand-washing and routine cleaning of all surfaces. We recommend you follow CDC and World Health Organization guidelines for workplaces.
We also recommend you communicate to customers how you’ve shifted to a curbside, takeout and/or delivery model, and how guests can expect to order and receive their food from your restaurant. Reassure them about your cleaning protocols and contactless options where you can, and include information about your food handling and packaging safety precautions.
